I love October. Not just because its my birthday month, though that definitely plays a factor! I love autumn’s beautiful colors and the way the light starts to make everything golden. In all honesty, that doesn’t usually happen in Southern California until November. But we are having an unusually early autumn this year. We had two rains in August (unheard of) and a surprising number of cool, gray days in September. No fall foliage yet, but the light is right and the air is crisp! So I have been painting as invocation.
